Hi everyone, Hope this post find's you all well, just going back a little into my husband's background, 2003 heart attack and 2 stents fitted LAD and RCA, did well after rehabilitation and back to work after six week's, about 18 month's ago he started having Angina again, more often and more severe referred to cardio who after all tests gave him all clear, he was taken to hospital on at least 5 occasion's only to be sent home, once on beta-blocker's and this last July on Isosorbide 60mg which should have been 30mg, he was so ill and still having angina, eventually his dosage went to 90mg,waited 16 weeks for cardio appointment, cardio decided to do angiogram 4 weeks ago, found 90% blockage in left main stem and 60-70% blockage in LAD stent, and blockage in RCA stent, referred to another cardio for more stenting or by-pass, he had 3 stents fitted on Friday 29th Nov 13, one day before his 51st birthday, he is doing really well, I am so proud of him,follow your intuition on your health issues, you know your own body, and the tests they do do not always show up any problems as with my husband, but he said all along it was a blockage, Thanks for letting me have a moan.

I am thrilled to know your husband's outcome was a good one.  You can be very proud of yourself for being a true advocate for your husband.
 
Wishing you the best of the holiday season.
 
Kindly,
Kitt
